Are you searching for a holistic dentistry treatment that supports natural healing and is minimally invasive? If so, you’ll want to learn more about the incredible benefits of dental ozone therapy.

Dental ozone therapy is fast becoming one of the most effective treatment options used in dentistry today. This minimally invasive and conservative approach to oral care can be used to:

  • clear away infections, and cavity-causing bacteria
  • heal gum infections and support bone regeneration
  • reduce tooth sensitivity

Holistic dentists have used this procedure for many years, but it has only recently gained significant attention as bacteria become more and more antibiotic-resistant.

Many patients favour it because it’s conservative, painless, minimally invasive, and can dramatically lessen treatment time.

What is Ozone Dental Therapy?

Ozone is essentially a super-charged form of oxygen with the unique ability to disinfect. This fights off many different types of bacteria that cause periodontal diseases, dental pain, and tooth decay.

Your holistic dentist will use ozone dental therapy when he/she needs to clean out certain areas of the mouth. Using a specialized ozone machine, your dentist will use a blast of ozone to successfully eliminate any bad microbes or bacteria.

Ozone can be applied:

  • using liquid
  • in a gaseous form

Our dental office uses medical-grade pure oxygen to generate pure ozone, which can then be used in the gas and liquid form.

A consultation with Dr Korol can help you discover whether adding ozone therapy to your dental health routine would be beneficial.

Benefits of Dental Ozone Therapy

Ozone dental therapy can be used for a wide number of applications and our Calgary dental clinic has incorporated this advanced technology to enhance our treatments for the benefit of our patients’ oral health.

Here are just a few of the reasons why you may want to talk to your holistic dentist about this type of therapy.

1. It Is Effective In Fighting Decay-Causing Bacteria

  • Ozone is 1.5 times greater than chloride when used as an antimicrobial agent against bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa. It also has the capacity to stimulate blood circulation and the immune response” 
  • Because of this, Ozone can often be used to help treat infections are conventionally treated only physically (through the removal of the biofilm by a dentist or hygienist), or through antibiotics.
  • It can also help disinfect areas of the mouth after a tooth extraction, pre-wash surgical sites , and in other similar procedures. 

2. It Supports Gum Health And Healing

Ozone has been used very successfully to treat periodontal disease. In this procedure, 3 ozonated water is flushed below the gum line and/or ozone gas infiltrated into the gum tissue and supporting tissue to restore the health to the mouth.

3. It’s Noninvasive

For those with anxiety about dental pain or procedures, ozone therapy can be a fantastic option. It can be used in plaque control, help decrease sensitive tooth necks, and assist in cavity preventions without any invasive tools or discomfort.

4. It’s All-Natural

Ozone therapy provides a safe and holistic dentistry treatment option for patients who are suffering from a number of oral problems. Dentists are able to remove harmful

bacteria without resorting to the use of other products that can have toxic and unhealthy side-effects.

There are numerous other potential benefits to this therapy. It may:

  • improve blood circulation and oxygen delivery to tissues in the area
  • enhance metabolism through improved oxygen delivery
  • activate your immune system
  • induce a feeling of overall wellness

Am I A Candidate For Ozone Therapy?

While ozone therapy is favoured by many patients, it is always important to have a consultation with a dentist to go over all possible side effects and contraindications to ensure it is the best option for you.

For example, those who are pregnant or who have conditions such as severe anemia or cardiovascular instability are not good candidates for ozone therapy. If ozone therapy is not right for you, our holistic dentistry team can help you find safe, effective treatment alternatives.

Did You Know?

In addition to the treatments we currently offer in-clinic, our team is always following the latest developments and research in this field.

For example, some have studied the effective use of ozone in restorative dentistry, prior to etching and placing dental sealants and restorations. Others have used ozone to address grade I and II level leathery caries (not to be confused with deeper cavities that require fillings). Some dental professionals have also documented positive results when combining ozone with teeth whitening treatments to boost tooth whitening, and 9 using ozonated gel to improve patient comfort after third molar removal.
